PHP Warning: imagecreatefromjpeg(): gd-jpeg, libjpeg: recoverable error: Premature end of JPEG file

I was having an issue with only certain random/jpeg files with the functions imagecreatefromjpeg imagecreatetruecolor and other related ones.

This issue was annoying basically it seems like a libgd issue/bug with newer versions of PHP and it was difficult to trace-out.  One very useful thing that helped me was using "php-cgi" and passing the query string as an argument eg:

php-cgi images.php source=IMG.jpg (that way you get all the error messages which lead me to below):

PHP Warning:  imagecreatefromjpeg(): gd-jpeg, libjpeg: recoverable error: Premature end of JPEG file

The solution is to tweak the PHP GD settings to ignore this warning

/etc/php.ini

[gd]
; Tell the jpeg decode to ignore warnings and try to create
; a gd image. The warning will then be displayed as notices
; disabled by default
; http://www.php.net/manual/en/image.configuration.php#ini.image.jpeg-ignore-warning
gd.jpeg_ignore_warning = 1
